Looks like I wasn’t the only one who had to spend time at a car dealership today. Once I got here to Bitter’s, I noticed my car didn’t want to turn at the intersection, which is when I noticed it had stalled. Its idling rough, and at very low RPM. Check engine light is on. I’m figuring an O2 sensor on the engine is acting up and the computer is running the engine too rich. The dealership I took it to hasn’t read the code off the engine yet. We shall see when they call me. Unlike Ahab, I didn’t bring a copy of American Rifleman, but the Honda dealership is right down the road from NRA headquarters.
UPDATE: Turns out the code indicates the computer wasn’t reading anything from the throttle body.Â When the dealer tested the throttle body itself, it was fine.Â They couldn’t get it to produce the code again.Â I’m going to take it home.Â If it happens again I’ll get the throttle body replaced.Â Hopefully it was a bump in the night type thing.
